THEME: "Modern" Track Titles

Always a sucker for track title themes, I thought I'd put together a list of songs that start with the word "modern" for you fantastic macktronic readers. It all started the Black Keys track (amazing, by the way) and got me thinking of the YYY track and then it all snowballed. Lots of good bands ended up being included, which was kind of surprising. Enjoy.

::: The Black Keys - Modern Times
::: Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Modern Things
::: The Strokes - Modern Girls & Old Fashion Men
::: Wolf Parade - Modern World
::: Viktor Vaughn - Modern Day Mugging
::: Art Brut - Modern Art
::: Kaiser Chiefs - Modern Way
::: The Changes - Modern Love
::: Sleater Kinney - Modern Girl
::: Mos Def - Modern Marvel
::: Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Modern Romance
::: TV On The Radio - Modern Romance (YYY Cover)

In this photo I've made the visitors the main subject (it was Elíasson's intention that they became part of the work), omitting the centre piece, which was a large 'half sun' at the end of the hall. The ceiling was mirrored which is why people are lying on the floor looking up. The air was mist-filled and the light really was that colour!"]
